Hi and welcome to HCM
According to your description , pain over your elbow seems to be inflammatory in nature. tingling in fingers could be due to pressure over nerve roots by inflammed tissue.
I advice you to give you rest to the part affected, take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation and consult your doctor for thorough examination of elbow and rule out any infective cause.
Hope this will helps you. Take care.
